DisasterHelp.gov Provides Support
to the Southern California Firefighting Efforts
part of the Disaster Management E-Gov initiative, is providing
support to the firefighting efforts in Southern California. DisasterHelp.gov
is enabling the air support responders to continuously upload
pictures of the fire and additional data to a secure portion of
the site to be shared with people engaged in the response effort.
This will also soon incorporate a secure connection to a live
video feed. Though this portion of the site is unavailable to
those who have not been granted access, daily updates are being
made to the publicly-accessible DisasterHelp.gov
home page highlighting announcements and available resources as
provided by the National Fire Information Center (NIFC), the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other partner organizations.
